Just as Cascadia is a diverse group of individuals with common interests, ambassadors and chapters create a vibrant network of localized groups that raise awareness of Cascadia, build partnerships, host projects and empower every person to be active about issues they care about.
CascadiaNow! Ambassadors raise awareness and educate about Cascadia & bioregionalism, shift our impacts locally, and build connections with local businesses, organizations and groups. Ambassadors give presentations, table, do art campaigns, and connect regional campaigns and projects into their community at a local level, and hook in with our CN! ambassador and chapter network.To be involved:

CascadiaNow! will help you flush out a leadership team, provide space in our newsletters, blog, calendar and social media, will work with you to build a timeline and budget, and provides a non-profit umbrella for receiving grants and fundraising when your club or group is ready.

Hook in with our Regional Ambassador and Chapter Network
